This module contains activities, discussions and practice exercises on how to determine the center and radius of a circle given its equation and vice versa. This particular topic is essential in Coordinate Geometry. Understanding coordinate geometry has important applications like mapping in aeronautics and navigation, finding the distance and midpoints between points and many more in other different fields. Thus, it is important for you to know how to determine the center and radius of circles given its equation and vice versa.
At the end of this module, you will be able to achieve the following objectives:
1. illustrate the center-radius form of the equation of a circle, and
2. determine the center and radius of a circle given its equation and vice versa.
